Ashlee and Brett first met years go, through her brother. Though they frequently saw each other at parties and events throughout the years, they never really connected. It wasn’t until 2014 when Ashlee moved into her own place and her brother started coming over and bringing Brett that the two finally got to know one another. They immediately hit it off and began dating.
Three years into their relationship, Ashlee found out she was pregnant with their first child together. During her pregnancy, she noticed a lump in her breast. She had the lump examined and while it was initially dismissed as being pregnancy related, her doctors became more concerned as time went on. Following the birth of her child, Ashlee was diagnosed with stage 4 metastatic breast cancer that had spread to her hip. She underwent a mastectomy and extensive radiation and is currently undergoing a trial of oral chemotherapy to target the cancer in her hip.
Despite the often-debilitating pain in her hip and her decreased mobility, Ashlee is trying her best to be an active mom to her two children. Through all of her trials over the past year and a half, Brett has been an incredible rock for their family – helping to take care of the kids, working hard and caring for all of Ashlee’s needs.
